Update 1:45 PM Central: reports out that Martin’s knuckles show signs consistent with a fist-fight.
This suggests there was a fist fight of some sort before 17 year-old Trayvon Martin was shot to death by George Zimmerman earlier this year in Florida:
(CBS) — Medical records showing that George Zimmerman was treated for a fractured nose and cuts to the back of his head after fatally shooting 17-year-old Trayvon Martin will likely bolster Zimmerman’s argument that Martin attacked him, CBS News legal analyst Jack Ford said on “CBS This Morning” Wednesday.
The records came to light Tuesday. CBS News has also confirmed they show that Zimmerman had a pair of black eyes when he was examined by a doctor Feb. 27, the day after he shot Martin in a gated Florida community. Zimmerman, who has claimed self-defense, faces a charge of second-degree murder in the shooting.
